discharge the Company’s obligations with respect to any taxes, assessments or other governmental charges, whether of the
United States or any other jurisdiction, imposed on the Participant on account of his or her participation in the Plan. In the
discretion of the Company, the Company may deduct or withhold such sum from any payment or distribution to the Participant,
whether pursuant to the Plan or otherwise. In addition, the Company may require a Participant to pay the Company an amount
necessary to discharge Company obligations with respect to any payroll taxes that may be owed on the Participant’s Account
Balance that are no longer subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture.

      Section 3.02 Currency and Foreign Exchange Rates . All Cash Bonuses or other cash payments made pursuant to the Plan
will be made in cash in U.S. dollars to Participants who are employed or reside within the United States at the time such
payments are made. With respect to Participants who are employed or reside outside the United States, unless the Company
determines otherwise, all Cash Bonuses or other cash payments made pursuant to the Plan will be made in cash in the local
currency of the country in which the Participant is employed or resides at the time such payments are made and such payments
shall be made in accordance with the foreign currency exchange rate in effect at the time of payment as determined by the
Company. However, if a Participant works in more than one country between an Award Date and a payment date, the Participant
may receive proportionate distribution payments in the local currency of each work country, at exchange rates determined by
the Committee in its sole discretion.

      Section 3.03 Nontransferability . Except as may be provided for in award documents applicable to Awards granted pursuant

garnishment during the Participant’s lifetime, including but not limited to, in connection with a divorce, legal separation, or
similar event.

determine all questions arising in the administration of the Plan, including, without limitation, the reconciliation of any
inconsistent provisions, the resolution of ambiguities, the correction of any defects, and the supplying of omissions. The
Committee or the Plan Administrator may accelerate or defer the vesting or payment of Awards, cancel or modify outstanding
Awards, and waive any conditions or restrictions imposed with respect to Awards, subject to the limitations contained herein.
Each interpretation, determination or other action made or taken pursuant to the Plan by the Plan Administrator shall be final
and binding on all persons, subject to the provisions of Section 5.10 hereof concerning arbitration. To the extent permitted by
applicable law, the Committee or the Plan Administrator may at any time delegate to one or more employees of the Company
some or all of its authority over the administration of the Plan. Such delegation need not be in writing.

administration.

      Section 4.01 Right to Amend or Terminate the Plan . The Committee may, in its sole discretion, modify, amend, terminate or
suspend the Plan or any Award at any time, which modification, amendment, termination or suspension shall not require the
consent of the affected Participants and which may be made irrespective of whether it could result in adverse tax consequences
to any Participant; provided that with respect to a Participant who is a U.S. taxpayer the Committee shall not modify or amend
such Participant’s Award in a manner that would give rise to adverse tax consequences under Section 409A or Section 457A of
the Code unless such modification or amendment is undertaken in accordance with Section 5.09.

      Section 4.02 Action Following Termination of the Plan . Upon termination of the Plan, the Committee or the Plan
Administrator may take such action with respect to each Award as it reasonably determines is necessary or desirable. No
termination of the Plan will give rise to a claim by any Participant of constructive termination of employment.

      Section 4.03 Sub Plans . The Company may, in its sole discretion, create separate sub-plans (“Sub Plans”) under the Plan,
which shall provide for participation in the Plan by Eligible Employees employed outside of the United States. Each Sub Plan

      Section 5.01 Unfunded Status of the Plan . The Plan is unfunded. Any Award made pursuant to the Plan shall represent at
all times an unfunded and unsecured contractual obligation of the Company. Each Participant and each of his or her
beneficiaries will be unsecured creditors of the Company with respect to all obligations owed to any of them under the Plan.
Amounts payable or distributable under the Plan will be satisfied solely out of the general assets of the Company subject to the
claims of its creditors. A Participant and his or her beneficiaries will not have any interest in any fund or in any specific asset of
the Company of any kind by reason of any return credited to him or her hereunder, nor shall the Participant or any of his or her
beneficiaries or any other person have any right to receive any payment or distribution under the Plan except as, and to the
extent, expressly provided pursuant to applicable Award documents. The Company will not segregate any funds or assets to
provide for the distribution in respect of an Award or issue any notes or security for the payment thereof. Any reserve or other
asset that the Company may establish or acquire to assure itself of the funds to provide payments required under the Plan shall
not serve in any way as security to any Participant or any beneficiary of a Participant for the performance of the Company under
the Plan.

      Section 5.02 ERISA Status of the Plan . The Plan is a discretionary incentive and retention award plan and is not intended
to be subject to ERISA, and it shall be operated and interpreted consistent with such intent. A Program may be subject to
ERISA if the express terms of the Program so provide.

      Section 5.03 No Right to Continued Employment . Neither the Plan nor any action taken or omitted to be taken pursuant to

the Company, (b) interfere with or limit in any way the Company’s right to terminate the employment of a Participant at any time
or (c) confer on a Participant any right or entitlement to compensation in any specific amount for any future Fiscal Year. In
addition, an Eligible Employee’s eligibility for an Award for a given Fiscal Year shall not be deemed to create or confer on the
Participant any right to an Award, or any benefit or payment in any similar plan or program that may be established by the
Company, in respect of any future Fiscal Year.

      Section 5.04 Offset Rights . Notwithstanding any provisions of the Plan to the contrary, to the extent consistent with the
requirements of Section 409A of the Code, the Company may offset against any payments or distributions that would have
otherwise been made to a Participant under the Plan by (a) any amounts which such Participant may owe to the Company, or (b)
any amounts paid by the Company to a third party pursuant to any award, judgment, or settlement of a complaint, arbitration or
lawsuit of which such Participant was the subject.

      Section 5.05 Governing Documents. Notwithstanding any provision of this Plan to the contrary, if an Award is granted
pursuant to the terms of a Program, the Award documents under the Program shall control in the event of any conflict between
the terms of the Plan and the applicable Award documents under the Program.

Company.

      Section 5.07 Governing Law . The Plan shall be subject to and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New

the substantive law of another jurisdiction.

ignored in any construction of any provision hereof. Use of one gender includes the other, and the singular and plural include
each other.

      Section 5.09 Regulatory Compliance . The Committee may modify the provisions of an Award, a Program, and/or the Plan to
the extent required or permitted under any applicable law, regulation, rule, regulatory guidance or legal authority or any policy
implemented at any time by the Company in its discretion to (a) comply with any legal, regulatory or governmental requirements,
directions, supervisory comments, guidance or promulgations specifically including but not limited to guidance on
remuneration practices or sound incentive compensation practices promulgated by any U.S. or non-U.S. governmental or
regulatory agency or authority, (b) comply with the listing requirements of any stock exchange on which the Company’s
common stock is traded or (c) comply with or enable the Company to qualify for any government loan, subsidy, investment or
other program.

      Section 5.10 Arbitration. Any disputes related to the Plan or an Award shall be resolved by arbitration in accordance with

Association.
